KING SIZE QUILT - USED THE PATTERN FROM OLD RED BARN QUILT ALONG


These fabrics are soooooooooooooo awesome. The color in this picture just does not do them justice. This quilt is for a friend, she asked me to make her a king size quilt....she just said deep browns, greens, and blues.....so that is what I did. I told my husband if she doesn't like this quilt, I will just put it on the spare bed for company. We are getting compnay...isn't that wonderful???? My husband's cousin and his wife.

I am going to put a border on this as well...I like for my quilts to drape the bed nicely... No finishing this until I know whether my husband can make a run to Hawaii for more quilt batting. I did tell you that my friend got some here but it was high loft, I like low loft and she paid, I believe she said 4.96 a yard...she got 11 yards...sheweeeeeee ..........................I can wait....I said I was good at waiting....

Beautifl quilt Barb. I usually pay about $5.00 a yard for warm and natural when it is on sale. Otherwise it is ten bucks a yard. :(

That quilt is WONDERFUL. What's NOT to love about it? How nice that you are getting houseguests, too. When will they arrive and how long are they staying?

I love the fabrics/colors in this quilt. It is looking stunning so far. I think you may need to make another quilt for the guest room.
